One of the best campgrounds in AZ - imo. Stock up in Flag just before heading out of town and get into the wilderness! It's a 3 mile uphill drive along a very well maintained dirt road that does get narrow as it winds it way up to the meadow. There are only a couple of sites at Lockett so get there early (first come first serve basis). $14 per site - up to 8 people max in each. The open season is May-October 12. It is free outside of the open season dates, but this area does close down once the road is deemed too dangerous in the winter.
The meadow is tucked away affording views of the surrounding San Francisco Peaks Wilderness. Solitude and beauty are your compadres here. Fall is probably the primo time to visit.

Storm rolling in. Leaves on their way out. Good times to be had!little car camping w the pup The road leading to the Inner Basin Trailhead

Lockett Meadow in Fall = Aspens raining thousands of bright yellow leaves on your head, perpetual views of the Flagstaff area, snowpeak mountain tops behind you, and endless trails to venture upon with any outdoor seeker. This past weekend, a friend and I camped at spot 15 in Lockett Meadow and were gifted with one of our favorite camping experiences in AZ. The campground has huge group sites, but also small pieces of solitude.

Some notes:
- The forest road to Lockett Meadow is a well-maintained dirt road but does climb alongside a cliff so drive slowly and carefully. I drove in a small Chrysler with no 4-wheel drive - any car should make it.
- Lockett Meadow campground is right near the Inner Basin trailhead.
- Reserve far ahead!

Within one mile of the Inner Basin trail, views like this are everywhere. Even if you don't camp at Locket Meadow, head up for a fall foliage day-hike.The view towards Humphrey's Peak, across Lockett Meadow!Our campsite and table!Setting up breakfast!

This is a very nice remote place to camp at, however it is over run with NAU students in the camp ground. I was there last Friday night and a group of five guys were making loud noises all night. It sounded as if they were shaping sheet metal with loud banging. They then started back up with the loudness at 6:00am! During the day you have massive amounts of cars arriving from the valley to do day hiking. The camping areas are bathed in dust all day as cars come and go. Over all the area is over stressed with people using the facilities. If you want a nice quite camping experience I would skip this place!
